Dashcam Shows Seattle Police Chase Stolen Ambulance

** (Disclaimer: This video content is intended for educational and informational purposes only) **
A Seattle ambulance was speeding through the streets of the city, and cops were following in its wake. But it wasn’t headed toward an emergency, rather, the aid car was the emergency.

“He just rammed one of our patrol cars,” an officer is heard saying on the dash cam video.

Seattle police pursued a 23-year-old man who stole a Seattle Fire Department aid car and sped through the city Saturday evening. Officers initially responded after receiving reports of a man who jumped out of a downtown hotel room window and dropped 10 feet to the ground. He soon found an ambulance parked nearby, hopped in and drove off.

Being a city aid car, however, officials could easily track the vehicle and it moved toward North Seattle. Police tried to block the aid car’s path around Sand Point Way but the suspect turned it around, bashing into one patrol car, and sped off again.

“You need to pull over sir. We cannot keep doing this. Somebody’s going to get hurt,” the Seattle police officer says over his loudspeaker.

“We’re not going to let you go … You need to stop and talk to us, OK. This is not going to work,” he said. “Please pull over.”

Finally, the suspect ended the chase around 50th Avenue and 65th Street — he pulled over and turned himself in.

“Put your hands out the window. It’s OK, just put your hands out the window,” the officer instructs the man. “There ya go, step on out.”

Another aid car was called in to treat the man’s injuries that were caused by dropping from the hotel window — he fell out of the ambulance as he exited and was clearly favoring one leg. Police report that the man appeared to be dazed when he was taken into custody. He has been booked into King County Jail with an auto theft charge.

  1. Wait a sec…"Medic One"? That was the ambulance I saw in the two-hour special from "Emergency!" titled "Most Deadly Passage" when Gage and DeSoto were working with Medic One and the Seattle Fire Department while visiting Seattle and seeing how their paramedic program was different from their own in Los Angeles County with the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

  2. LAWYER: Your honor, my client was dazed and confused when he involuntarily and unexpectedly found himself on the ground under a random window. The fall caused him to experience temporary memory loss which resulted in him having no recollection of the event…

    JUDGE: Uh huh…

  3. Yeah that ambulance is basically a moving bomb if it wrecks with the amount of O2 tanks in that thing. Think God that officer convinced him to pull over.

  4. That's a damn fine Officer… I wish people saw more videos of cops like this instead of the assholes.

  5. Hey, since you all want to know, here's a guide on how to get arrested or killed: Step 1: steal a government vehicle

  6. What I want to know is where in the hell he thought he was going to go in that thing? I've driven them. They're slow, hard to handle in turns. They've got shitty mileage and huge blind spots. I man if you're going to steal something with flashy lights at least go for the cop cars, then you have a chance at getting away. lol

  7. Omg did he actually use the equipment inside his cruiser to do his job? and actually de-escalate a situation? holy shit i can't believe it. Its almost like he didn't just want to kill him like most other police officers

  8. That had to have been an officer from SPD pre WTO, new ones are trained blackwater, and would simply machine gun the guy and leave him in a ditch alongside the road.

    Neo America needs the old style of compassion to end the current dark ages.

  9. Omg! Complete police brutality! They handcuffed him when he was clearly injured. They took him from the ambulance, he was just a confused black man trying to get medical attention!
